Find out who ends on top

In the last couple of years, the Indian market of two wheelers has seen an upward growth in terms of both sales numbers as well as maturity. Talking about the latter aspect, the urban Indian buyer is gradually beginning to think beyond the sole factor of fuel efficiency, as he wants something more from his machine – factors like comfort, features, added power and a bit more muscle in the machine he rides. For all these factors, it is the segment of entry level 150cc commuters which, in these days, is serving them in the most apt way. This particular category of motorcycles may not serve the fuel economy of a 100/110/125cc motorcycle, but then, it surely gives the consumer a feel of riding a bigger motorcycle, without sacrificing much on his pocket.

The oldest player of this field, Honda CB Unicorn, continues to impress its target audience with its no-nonsense approach towards design, strengthened by its robust build quality, refinement and the credit of introduction of the technology of rear monoshock in the Indian market. Yamaha also opened its cards by launching the SZ-RR Version 2.0 below the FZ range, which serves as its most affordable 150cc offering. And then, recently, Hero gave a comprehensive makeover to its underdog, the Achiever, which claims to have become much more desirable and better in its new avatar.

Finally come Bajaj Auto, which has the most versatile lineup of 150cc motorcycles in the Indian market. But then, it offers a very unique product in the market which offers the performance and features of the 150cc motorcycles aforementioned above, but at a price of a 125cc motorcycle. This product is the Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS, the only 135cc motorcycle in the country today, which aims to take all the lower positioned 150cc motorcycles. Which one of these emerges out to be the best bet? Let’s find out:-

Find out who wins the top spot

In the last couple of years, the Indian market of two wheelers has seen an upward growth in terms of both sales numbers as well as maturity. Talking about the latter aspect, the urban Indian buyer is gradually beginning to think beyond the sole factor of fuel efficiency, as he wants something more from his machine – factors like comfort, features, added power and a bit more muscle in the machine he rides. For all these factors, it is the segment of 150cc commuters which, in these days, is serving them in the most apt way. This particular category of motorcycles may not serve the fuel economy of a 100/110/125cc motorcycle, but then, it surely gives the consumer a feel of riding a bigger motorcycle, without sacrificing much on his pocket.

On closely inspecting this segment, we do find that the motorcycles of the higher and premium end of this segment, which comprises of motorcycles like the CB Hornet 160R, Yamaha FZ-S FI and Suzuki Gixxer, are now churning up impressive numbers. But then, it is the lower end of the segment which is forming up the biggest chunk of this segment, as far as volume is concerned. The oldest player of this field, Honda CB Unicorn, continues to impress its target audience with its no-nonsense approach towards design, strengthened by its robust build quality, refinement and the credit of introduction of the technology of rear monoshock in the Indian market. Yamaha also opened its cards by launching the SZ-RR Version 2.0 below the FZ range, which serves as its most affordable 150cc offering. And then, to cater to the reducing customer interest in Pulsar, Bajaj tried to retain its potential customers with the all new V15, a motorcycle which is quite unique to this entry-level 150cc segment, thanks to its individualistic design and the fact that it contains the metal of the very famous INS Vikrant.

After all the action from its arch rivals in the budget segments, how can Hero be so silent? Just recently, Hero revamped its most affordable 150cc offering for the Indian market, the Achiever, with an all new design and retuned powertrain, which makes it feel like an all new motorcycle. In this story, we are going to compare all these four motorcycles which form the lower end of the 150cc segment, to find out which one fits the tag of the segment leader in actual sense.
